Area Youth's Photo Selected as Top 12 in the State; On Display at State Fair

Aug. 8, 2014

North Woods Landscape by Linden Pohland was chosen as a Top 12 photo in the 2014 Wisconsin 4-H and Youth Photo Display. Pohland has been a member of the Freistadt 4-H Friends Club of Germantown for 10 years. This was Pohland’s eighth year in the photography project. The photo was taken July of 2013 in Minocqua, WI on Patricia Lake. The display, which features more than 130 select photos taken by youth from 53 counties across the state, will be exhibited in the Wisconsin State Fair Exposition Center, July 31-August 10. Thousands of visitors will view the display during the fair.

Pohland said "I've been asked about this shot many times and always say that I happened to be in the right place at the right time. By fusing both nature and weather elements I was able to get a timeless shot that does not even look real. I feel honored to be in the top 12, there are many great 4-H photographers around the state and being recognized as one of them is very humbling. As a long time member of the photography project this is the pinnacle of my work over the course of the last eight years. I appreciate everyone who has taught and mentored me along the way to becoming a better photographer."
